How can I get my hymen repaired

We always carry out hymen reconstruction on an outpatient basis. You can go home about 10 minutes after the hymen surgery, provided the procedure was performed under local anesthesia. However, if the procedure was performed in twilight sleep or general anesthesia, you will remain in our practice clinic for around 30 minutes after the procedure. As soon as you are fit again, you can go home.

After the hymen operation under local anesthesia, you can usually drive home yourself - but most patients find it more pleasant when a relative takes over the driving. During a hymen operation under twilight sleep or general anesthesia, you are not allowed to drive a car yourself - ask a friend or family member to pick you up.

Make yourself comfortable at home and relax. The pain after hymen surgery can be treated well with commercially available painkillers. In general, you can go back to your usual activities immediately, as the healing of the hymen proceeds very quickly.

You can shower again from the day after the hymen surgery. However, you should not bathe until the threads have dissolved. The threads will resolve on their own between the second and third weeks of healing. Please do not apply any creams or take a hip bath during this time!

We meet 4 weeks after the procedure to check that everything has healed well and that the hymen is closed.
